Knew that Woodstock Mayor and State Rep. candidate Brian Sager, now a declared Democrat, had pension, mayoral and RTA income, but didn’t know until this past weekend that New Lenox Mayor Tim Baldermann, a Republican State Rep. candidate, was fairly simlarly situated as far as public sector income goes.
Brian Sager is receiving two pensions.
- $105,341.40 for 31 years working for community colleges, mainlyj at McHenry County College
- $4,447.20 from the State Employees (Pension) System for two years employment as Far East Trade Representative in the State of Illinois Hong Kong Office under former Governor Jim Thompson from 1977-1979
He also receives two salaries:
- $12,000 for being Woodstock’s Mayor
- $25,000 from his RTA Board appointment by Jack Franks
Baldermann “receives $71,000 a year in disability from Chicago Ridge as former police chief there, a salary of $206,000 as superintendent of the tiniest school district in the state [with other fringe benefits], and an $18,000 salary as mayor of New Lenox (which he says he donates to charity), plus “$15,000 as a Metra director until stepping down in August when he announced he was running for the state House seat.”
